Vocab sorted via NT book?

Postby uberdwayne » Mon Sep 23, 2013 1:46 am

Anyone know of some "flashcard software" that has vocabulary separated by frequency in NT Book? I'd like to be able to memorize vocabulary as I go through certain chapters and books! It seems more relevant than going through random words.

As far as I remember, both Anki (flashcard program) and Memrise (website) offer decks that are keyed to common textbooks. You just have to search a bit. I use both services every day, but in Anki I use the 80% Greek vocab deck, and on memrise I'm working through Greek Prose Composition (thanks Bedwere!).

EDIT: Sorry, I just read your OP more closely: I don't know if they have things that are sorted by frequency, but I generally assume that if you have a good textbook they're going to be throwing the most common stuff at you first anyway.. After a year of pretty intensive Greek study, I'm finding I know about 75 to 90% of the Greek Prose Composition vocabulary already. It's more of a review for me.

Thanks for your reply. I have a working knowledge of the more common words, a vocabulary somewhere around 800 words. However I find that as my vocabulary increases, the likelyhood of using those words decreases, so I lose them. If I could only get the vocabulary for a specific book Im studying, I could learn them in context and drill more frequently. It gets real time consuming to make individual cards for every word. Though I suppose I'd have them handy for future use.
